Fertilization Report


Of the 45 eggs retrieved......... 38 were fertilized!! WOOHOO!!!!

RE called and gave me the run down, which is the same as what I posted yesterday. So I just continue on my merry little protocol of 8 billion estrogen pills and getting stuck in the ass with a huge needle and we're all good!

Oh, on that note....I don't remember this before (but then again, I have the memory of a 90 year old), but I swear I've had a few hot flashes lately and I think it's because of the evil estrogen! I'll be fine one minute, then all of a sudden I'm sweating and it's super hot. FML. After I'm done having babies the doctors can just remove my entire reproductive EVERYTHING because I don't have the desire to go through menopause if that's what it's all about. Ain't nobody got time for that!

And....just in case you thought I was being a big wuss about my PIO shots...
yea....shut your mouth! The one on the right is my Lupron shot that goes in my tummy and on the left, yep you guessed it, the infamous PIO shot. See, don't you feel sorry for my arse?!

As always, I'll keep you posted and in the meantime feel free to send ice packs and heating pads my way, for my sore bum.
